A Kurdish political analyst disclosed that Syria’s fighter jet downed by the US-led coalition warplanes in Raqqa had not targeted any position of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Raqqa.
“The phrase used by the US shows that the Syrian warplane had not tried to hit the SDF positions and therefore the Damascus government’s version of the story about the attacks on ISIL’s positions is correct,” Member of the Syrian Democratic Council Rizan Hadu said.
He said it is at this point that the US cannot make any lame excuses as it is trying to deteriorate the relations between the Syrian army and the SDF. “This issue will have negative effects on the conditions of Qamishli, Aleppo and Afrin and it will cause the Syrian army and the SDF to enter a marginal war which will be harmful to the war on terrorism.
Hadu also reiterated that Syria has the right to tell all sides that its strategy in fighting terrorism would never allow it to be a Troy horse to allow the US or any other side to use it in order to enter Syria.
Damascus announced in a statement on Sunday that the US-led coalition has shot down one of its fighter jets during a mission in Raqqa countryside.
According to the statement, the warplane was carrying out operations against ISIL in the countryside of Raqqa when it was targeted, leading to a crash and the loss of the pilot, who is currently missing.
